Restored fireplaces installed in Wimbledon (SW 19), South West London.

We restored an original Edwardian cast iron arch insert for a customer, supplying a pine Edwardian corbel surround in one room and supplied a beautiful original restored Edwardian cast iron arched insert, Edwardian corbel pine surround and slate hearth in another room. Both fireplaces were installed decoratively and with pine surrounds to be painted.

Restoration in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire (CB4)

4 weeks ago we removed a Edwardian slate surround and cast iron tiled insert, an Edwardian tiled combination fireplace and a small combination fireplace for restoration. They all were restored and reinstalled this week. The slate surround pictured below was restored back to honed slate and will be having a tiled hearth later on. The fireplace was installed for solid fuel use.

Customer review.

When we moved in to our house, the original Victorian fireplace was in quite a state of disrepair, with front bars completely detached, a broken grate resting on a stone, and the back rusted through in places. Another company we approached took the view that it would have to be replaced entirely, which seemed a real shame. In contrast, Paul & Richard at RPS were very happy to take on the work to restore the fireplace, including all the removal and refitting of the marble surround, replacement of the hearth, and arranging a flue lining for the chimney. After their efforts last summer, and a winter of heavy use since then, the fireplace still looks as good as new. They were polite, helpful & informative throughout. I thoroughly recommend their services for anyone wanting to retain the original character of a fireplace. Thank you! O. Lockwood (Amersham, Bucks) Before After
